Mi Cuba Cafe Opens in Columbia Heights


1424 Park Rd, NW

Late last week I mentioned that Mi Cuba Cafe was still coming to Columbia Heights in the former Paila Grill space on Park Road. Little did I know how soon it would be. On Saturday morning I passed by and was able to take some photos a few hours before they opened:

Their website is still under construction but I took some photos of their take out menu which you can see after the jump.

  • No Tres Leches Cake!?

    Ay Caramba!

  • Cascos de guayaba?

  • Puedo ir al baño?

  • By the way, went to Little Ricky’s in Brookland last weekend for Three Kings – nice atmosphere and food!

  • Spaghetti & red sauce?

  • I missed the the cuban eatery Omega that used to be in Adams Morgan (probably before most POP readers were born). Maybe this will fill the void of some good Cuban food.

  • I hope the Ropa Vieja is at least somewhat close to what I had in Miami and I will be a fan!

  • This is a nice place with great food! Check it out, it’ s not expensive at all anf the food is good! I loved the tostones!

  • Ate there last night – great food. Try the flan! Service still working out kinks – quick at first, then slow, slow, slow, even with only a few tables occupied. Looks family run. I’m very happy it’s there.

  • Went last night to check it out for take-out, and it was great! Very charming family that is running the place, and the food (lechon asado) was excellent.

  • Muy bonito y acogedor, desde que lo ves te dan deseos ya de entrar a comer y disfrutar. Muchas Felicidades

  • Me parece “Fenomenal”!!!Aun sin haber visitado este rinconcito Cubano, pero conociendo a esa hermosa familia, como son los duenos, yo les auguro <TODO UN EXITO!!!!!
    Ya estare con mi esposo y mis hijos visitandoles muy pronto!!!QUE DIOS LES BENDIGA Y PROSPERE! SE LO MERECEN!!!!!

  • Felicitaciones la comida es exelente y muy buenos precios, el Sabor autenticamente Cubano, Claro la chef es Cubana…

    Pronto estaremos de regreso. mmmmmm

  • Got take-out from there on Saturday. While waiting, met the Cuban family who owns/operates the establishment (I agree with anon above – they are absolutely charming!). I was impressed with the artwork and found out the grandmother is actually the artist of all of the artwork, including the wooden phone booth and the wood/silverware installation next to the kitchen door in the second picture.

    As for the food: fantastic. Will also say: finally, a damn good Cuban sandwich in DC.

  • My wife and I went there tonight and everything was amazing. The food was authentically Cuban and delicious. We will return soon with friends and family. The owner/chef is Cuban and his wife and family help run it. They too were great and seemed so happy and eager to please. I will be posting a much longer review in Yelp tonight.

  • Yo no estado en el restaurante, pero seguro que la comida esta de lujo. Un beso y mucha suerte para Ariel y Jacqueliene.
    Un saludo desde España
